If you were to mention the name Mike Skinner, 99% of the responses you would get back would be references to his seminal project The Streets. Not only are they seen as one of the most legendary outfits to come from the British Isles, The Streets are also seen as one of the most influential sounds in the U.K, and whilst their last musical efforts may have been all the way back in 2011, they've never been forgotten. Indeed Skinner has been producing music under various monikers since then, and most recently has found success with Tonga Balloon Gang, which features himself alongside Murkage Dave, Klepto DJ, Smith & more hosting monthly parties, playing festivals and shows across the UK & Europe as well as making vigorous new music together as well.
The Streets embark on their first UK tour in years next month, with a host of sold out dates and with all of that ready to go, they've unleashed a new banger for us to sink our teeth into; "Boys Will Be Boys", which features one of the UK's hottest talents, Jaykae. The beat is raucous & grimy, with hard hitting drums and synth stabs that'll make you screw face within seconds. Both Skinner & Jaykae go to war over this one, with Skinner's profound laid back style the complete opposite of his fellow Brummie Jaykae, who's aggressive style and delivery has become his signature over the years. The combination of the two together is a stark contrast, but one that works incredibly well, with this tune set to tear up raves across the globe.
